. >>> and backstage. 40 years ago tonight, america's oldest teenager with that brand new idea, turning a stage over to the next generation. >>> good evening on this sunday night. and as we come on the air this evening, the situation in the middle east reaching a tipping point. will there be all-out war between the israelis and hamas in gaza? or will frantic, behind-the-scenes negotiations, talks in neighboring egypt, help bring an 11th-hour truce? on the ground, the casualties are mounting tonight. in gaza, women, children among the dead as the israelis were trying to target the home of a key militant. many others were hit by that missile. meanwhile, in israel, as families rush to shelters, holes where the hamas rockets have landed. and these images tonight. israel blocking some of those incoming rockets aimed for its most populated cities, knocked down from the sky. part of the so-called iron dome. president obama tonight vowing support, saying israel has a right to defend itself, while at the same time, saying a ramp up in military activity in gaza, a ground war, would be bad for both sides. we h
to kick the tires a little bit. but looking at my notes here, when we had america's cup before us. >> yep. >> there was a discussion about seawall lot 330, that being a portion to use to help subsidize development, at that time the seawall lot 330 was assessed at 33million, now 30 million. how are we at the difference? we have seen property values increase generally over the past few months. how are we at a lower property value? >> we did three appraisals under the america's cup. the value,ly need help from brad, who i know is here, we did three appraisals piers -- excuse me, the seawall lot and take the value of the america's cup and that was lower than the 30 million that we are valuing it at. we had one that came in at 3 3 million, we had two others that brought an average down to an amount we agreed upon to use for transfer value, lower than 30 million. 30 million that is reflected came out of one appraisal in today's dollars and determined based upon looking at comparable sales -- recent comparable sales. >> right now we have not necessarily an agreement but understanding about 30 mi

, but they'll congratulate themselves and the media will move on to something else. america, however, will continue to ga o broke. am i too cynical? no. it's probably worse than that, says my next guest, congressman ron paul. congressman, predict the future. >> long term the future looks pretty good. a lot of people are waking up and know what we have today isn't workable, but in the short run the people in charge aren't going to admit it. they're not geoing to admit that we're bankrupt and they won't admit that we're on the vernl of a major, major change in our society, so they'll keep putting it aside and then we'll eventually probably destroy the dollar or have a dollar crisis where we'll be forced to revamp and change our system of financing. it could be pretty big. i mean, i think it could -- it won't be anything quite as bad as like when the soviet system collapsed, but a lot of change would have to come. i think the true bankruptcy would mean that we no longer can maintain an empire around the world. we no longer can maintain promises of entitlement of $222 trillion, so we hav

america can use its influence in this region to bring about more human rights, women's rights, more rights for children, more emphasis on free markets so i think the president, by going in and giving a well-crafted speech, same kind of rhetoric in thailand, i think this is a successful trip. as long as the president is stressing not enough progress but headed in the right direction i think it's a great use of his megaphone and use of american power. >> wasne want to get to benghaz with both of you. lindsey graham raised questions on "meet the press" and also mike rogers, the chair of the house intelligence committee did as well. let's play a little bit of lindsey graham. >> this white house mislead the american people about national security events? i think they might simply because when the bin laden raid occurred they leaked every detail about the raid. we heard detailed about classified information to make this president look good, so if they would leak classified information to make him look good would they withhold information to prevent him from looking bad. >> the republicans are no
out of this? the problem has partly been america's problem. the benign neglect of the last couple of years, letting the israeli-palestinian issue moulder, not boosting the more moderate palestinian group, has enabled hamas to broker these relationship and now they have morsi and others in play with them. >> as i talk to israeli officials, they will not rule out a ground invasion that could happen anytime. andrea and tom, we'll hear from you later in the program as we get into our roundtable. thank you both very much. >>> i want to turn now to the house and senate intelligence chairs. from michigan mike rogers and democratic senator from california dianne feinstein. welcome to both of you. >> thank you. >> i want to stay in the middle east and talk about what has been a central preoccupation for you this week, and that is the aftermath of this terror attack on our consulate in benghazi in libya, of course. and as we're on the air this morning, the central question is, who knew what when, and how was this described to the american people? did the government say what it was, when it
and investment cliff certainly interrelated. that's the definition of holding america's economy hostage. the politico's chief economic correspondent ben white says don't worry so much. ben, why do you say that? welcome back to "power lunch." why do you say this deal you think is done? >> details i think of the deal aren't done but the inevitability of the deal is done. people are looking at this through the lens of 2010-2011, a rising tea party, complete dysfunction in congress. not that we have a great function in language but we had a presidential election which the president ran and run on raising the top income tax rates. even republicans admit across the board, governor haley barbour of mississippi, one of the most conservative states in the nation, said we have to cut our losses on this, take some slight tax increase in return for some spending cuts. they're going to be back and forth, there's going to be moments where it looks like we're close to a deal, then terms change a little bit. but there is absolutely no appetite on the part of the republican party to get blamed for a fis

pause. we spent a lot of time as you brought up this morning supervisor avalos during the america's cup event authority lookinging at that pier in more detail and we determined there is an expensive proposition to remove, let alone try to rehabilitate it. it is sitting pier for us. as mentioned naturally deep berth. that is the whole reason the port exists on the western side is because we have naturally deep berths and can take advantage of that for the benefit so it is important to us. next door we are building the brandon street war f, requiring removal of peer 36, also row inforced and the building of a new park. the entire cost is 32 million. when i think about this, it will achieve something since 1987, repair a blighted part and put it into economic use. two, removes significant liability for the port. we are investing little money with respect to commitments on the america's cup to ensure the promenade and pier remain attached in event of seismic event. we will get another berth we desperately need at a cost we currently cannot afford. it is clear from our projections that will

different from the experience we had prior. talk about america's cup and looking at how piers 30 and 32 could get developed. i think that is significant. i think the approach warriors have had moving forward has been much more of an effort to really learn how to do this project. we are still in the learning process. i think that the warriors have expressed that even know that they are in the learning process and listening to stake holders. i think the impact from citizen's advisory committee is important and actually i'm glad we have amendments that we'll be putting forward that will assure they have a voice in future agreements that come before the board of supervisors prior to the board will get their recommendations. that makes a lot of sense. and also is the way that this project has moved forward so far. i want to commend the warriors on that. i see, you know, this resolution before us today on fiscal feasibility as a small step. certainly the amount of people in the room. it is a big step for the project moving forward but a small step in terms of all the questions and permitting
